AdBlue 10 Litre

AdBlue 10 litre is a high-purity 32,5 % w/w urea solution which is used as an additional working fluid in diesel cars and trucks equipped with SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction). The composition of AdBlue® is specified in DIN 70070. The use of such systems optimises engine performance, reduces the emission of harmful particles in exhaust gases and complies with the environmental standards Euro 4, Euro 5 and Euro 6. AdBlue® is a registered trademark of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V.).

What exactly is AdBlue?

AdBlue is a non-toxic, non–hazardous engine additive that comes in the form of a semi-clear liquid. Its official name is AUS32 and mainly consists of 67.5% deionised water.

AdBlue is stored in a separate tank in the vehicle, typically with its own sensor and gauge. This could be right next to the fuel tank so it’s obvious when you’re filling up.

How does it work?

To reduce emissions, the exhaust stream is sprayed with AdBlue using a post combustion process. It never comes into contact with the diesel itself. The exhaust will then predominately be water vapour, nitrogen and carbon dioxide.

Environmental damage is done when NOx (nitrous oxides) are released from diesel exhausts. AdBlue breaks them down using a process called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).

How long does AdBlue last?

A typical mid-sized diesel car will travel 1,000km on a single litre of AdBlue.

However, it all depends on the number of miles driven, driving style, and vehicle load. For commercial vehicles, the payload is another factor to consider.

If you ever need to top-up AdBlue between services, the car will alert you in plenty of time by messages on the dashboard.

Where can you buy AdBlue?

If you need to top up in between services you can buy AdBlue from us here at Rye Oil Ltd

Topping up AdBlue is quite straightforward. In most cases, you open the AdBlue filler cap, screw on the connecter of the refill bottle and allow the AdBlue to drain into the tank.
